Share Button

The Share button lets people add a personalized message to links before sharing on their timeline, in groups, or to their friends via a Facebook Message.

If your app is native to iOS or Android, we recommend that you use the native Share Dialog on iOS and Share Dialog on Android instead.

If your website doesn't need a button to open share dialog or Facebook provided button doesn't fit into your website design, Web Share Dialog is also provided for sharing links. Note that you do not need to implement Facebook login or request any additional permissions through app review in order to use this plugin.
